Last month, Brave Films, a documentary group released “16 Women and Donald Trump,” which tells the stories of the women who publicly disclosed that Trump sexually assaulted or harassed them.
One of Trump’s accusers, Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit against the President for repeatedly calling her a liar.
The President strongly denied that accusation against him and called it “fake news” and made –up stuff.”
During a press conference at the White Rose Garden in October, Trump said, “All I can say is it’s totally fake news — just fake. It’s fake, it’s made-up stuff. And it’s disgraceful what happens. That happens in the world of politics.”
The White House released its official position indicating that Trump’s accusers were lying.
The issue of sexual misconduct has been a major issue across the United States. A number of powerful men in the entertainment industry and in politics have been facing allegations of sexual misconduct.
Three lawmakers already stepped down from their positions due to the sexual harassment allegations against them over the past week.
